About the Owner

We returned to Cornwall in 2012 after meeting here 30 years ago. We love re-discovering the places we remember from those days and finding new gems, particularly the spectacular scenery around the rugged coast of the Lizard peninsular. Having now settled in Mullion, we look forward to welcoming guests to our holiday let.

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

Totally agree with all previous reviews. The accomodation is comfortable, relaxing, quiet, well equipped and well maintained. The garden is lovely and sitting on the patio overlooking it all is such wonderful 'wind-down' from our normal busy lives and from the activities of the day - fantastic walking!

A short walk into Mullion gives plenty of choice for eating and drinking and a short distance the other way takes you to the cove and coastal path (and a very friendly cafe serving excellent cream teas!) so much to do on the Lizard that we will have to return to explore further.

Well equipped holiday flat with beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

Excellently furnished and equipped flat with tasteful decor. We love walking and gardens so this flat and location were perfect for the two of us. There is so much to explore on the Lizard peninsula and Kittiwake is well placed for getting around. The owners allowed us privacy but were on hand and really helpful whenever we needed them.

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week staying in Kittiwake, it was beautifully decorated and well maintained. The extra little touches made it feel like home. Caroline gave us a warm and friendly greeting. The garden was stunning and at times we found it hard to tear ourselves away from it. Gill and David.

A lucky find

  • 5 of 5

Kittiwake was a very lucky find on the internet. From the warm welcome and the stunning views from every window, to the beautifully decorated and comfortable home. Everything you could possibly need is provided as well as many extra touches. There are books to read, games to play, jigsaws to do on a rainy day. There are lovely walks to do from the front gate, or beaches and villages a car ride away. It is a perfect location and a perfect property. An absolute gem.

From the Owner

Mullion is an ideal place to live. Being the largest village on the Lizard it has all the amenities you could wish for but retains its charm through its scenery and historical landmarks such as the 15th century church, working harbour and Marconi links at Poldhu. Even in the height of summer, the area remains relatively unspoilt by the tourist trade.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended


Less than a 10 minute walk to the working harbour and beach, a further 10 minute walk to sandy Pollurian beach which is only accessed on foot. Other stunning coves/ beaches just a short drive away include Poldhu (good for surfing), Kynance (spectacular rocky scenery), Church Cove and Cadgwith (working fishing cove as seen on "Fisherman’s Apprentice").


The nearest airport is Newquay (30 miles). Rail links are at Redruth or Penzance. Car not essential but recommended, village is on the local bus route.


Bustling St Ives is 20 miles, Falmouth about 15 miles, Truro/Penzance 25 miles.

Serene and sheltered Helford river area about 15 min drive.The National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek 15 mins. Charming open-air Minack Theatre less than an hours drive. The acclaimed Eden Project about an hour away.

Further Details:

Horse riding is available in Mullion. Kayaking and boat trips offered at the harbour. Surfing tuition at Poldhu cove.

Mullion village offers 3 small grocery shops, pubs, restaurants and post office.

Larger supermarkets 5 miles away at Helston also offer online delivery.
